Tricorn: Production is an on-premise production control and job processing solution designed to help small to large businesses manage and streamline all manufacturing processes, from generating initial estimates to final invoicing. It comes with reporting capabilities, which let users perform analysis to evaluate task performance and gain insights into ongoing work orders, inventory and leads.
Features of Tricorn: Production include stock control, job costing, invoicing, file attachments, quoting, delivery documentation and more. The platform provides an assembly processing module for manufacturers to use manufactured components in multiple finished products, ensuring completion of assembly on time. Additionally, businesses can manage purchase orders based on several metrics such as ad hoc, stocks, work orders, history and more.

A massive reduction in time spent preparing documents, also less errors as the system pulls everything trough from quote to invoice.
I like the system as it takes a lot of time out of preparing documents for every job. You can set template and within a few click you have all paperwork required with minimal time and effort. I also like that everyone in the office can log in and see or use the soft wear.
There are a few settings in place that wont let you continue with functions until you have done a 'tick box' exercise. This is frustrating in the beginning but you easily get used to it in time.

We have been using this system since 2007 and it must be said that it is a very well thought out piece of software and it has been continually refined and developed since then. If your business is manufacturing and you need control over your operations from quote stage to invoicing then look no further. Any issues that we have experienced have been dealt with swiftly and efficiently by the support team and regular updates have been implemented without issue.
One of the key aspects of this software is the ease of use, navigating your way through from quote to works order (and subsequently delivery notes and invoices) then through to purchasing, parts and materials and even sub contracting/tooling is all easily achieved by the little green arrows that provide links to each module. The system is therefore quite intuitive to use and training of new users can be carried out in a matter of hours.
There are a number of add on software packages that can be purchased separately, e.g. Financial, Scheduler and Dashboard, in order to enhance the capabilities of the software and these are rather expensive. It should be said that these are not necessary for the software to make a difference to your operations but they will certainly help.

In general did what we needed it to do but as we are now growing and wishing to use the system to enhance our production at the moment there is too much manual intervention required.
Find the support team very helpful when then can actually assist when it isn't a query regarding development of the whole system
Aids our need for traceability
Hyperlinks effective addition to latest version for ease of navigation from one table to another
constrained to standard data base layout - no ability to add additional fields or dropdowns
inflexible in some areas and slow to incorporate changes to standard data base
don't always get told about the latest release - therefore quite often running on low issue release.

Tricorn were brought in to take a hand written process, and automate it for better results. This is what was asked for, and Tricorn delivered all and some. I can't imagine going back now, and look forward to learning more from Tricorn's development of their Software.
A single data entry of a Customer's part, turned into multiple uses due to Tricorn. This has enabled us to develop an in depth profile, of all the important parts we manufacture. Traceability of materials and Sub-contract processes are of a great benefit. Emailing strait from Tricorn our quotes, orders and invoices saves so much time.
Over +15 years of having Tricorn:Production, the only minor cons have been addressed with updates. Tricorn has developed so much in that time, and we've grown along with it.

Quoting has been improved as a 10off can de altered to a 1000off in seconds and a new quote produced
delivery notes /invoices etc are all so easy an have full traceability as well has been very good
its easy to use and has proved to be not only a great quoting tool but also a very good management tool for keeping abreast of trends i.e. machine loading etc allowing us to look for extra work on machines that are under capacity. When it comes to delivery's invoices and c of c's it couldn't be easier
The search facility could be improved and I am sure as the upgrades come along it will be
